Faculty Positions in Single-Cell Biology

Shanghai Jiao Tong University School of Medicine (SJTUSM), China

Shanghai, China

The new Center for Single-Cell Omics (CSCOmics) invites applicants for full-time tenured or tenure-track positions in single-cell biology beginning now. Areas of interest in single-cell biology are single-cell genomics, single-cell proteomics and single-cell metabolomics, with a strong focus on computational approaches and multi-omics analysis.

We expect candidates to establish leadership positions in the above areas of research and strengthen the medical school’s translational efforts, especially in precision medicine. We have a special interest in the following areas of research:

  1. Single-cell, multi-omics technology development with a focus on computational analysis
  2. Cell heterogeneity in normal and diseased somatic tissues
  3. Single-cell disease management (e.g., risk factors diagnosis) with a focus on cancer
  4. Reproductive development and aging

Applicants should have a PhD, MD or equivalent biomedical degree and a track record of scientific excellence in the biomedical sciences. Positions are available at Assistant, Associate and Full Professor levels.

The CSCOmics is a new initiative with its own building on Shanghai Jiao Tong University School of Medicine in downtown Shanghai with first-class infrastructure. Shanghai is a highly cosmopolitan city and one of China’s main technology hubs at all levels. We strive to attract an international team of investigators from across the globe with a strong focus on diversity and the equal representation of women and men. With English serving as the common communication channel, proficiency in Chinese is not required. However, we do provide a free course in Mandarin Chinese as well as Chinese culture.

Shanghai Jiao Tong University School of Medicineoffers a rich and highly collaborative intellectual environment with state-of-the-art support facilities. Salaries for the new faculty are competitive, with generous start-up packages and housing allowance, dependent on demonstrated scientific excellence. The CSCOmics has also established a strong, competitive student and postdoc recruitment program to provide its faculty access to the best and brightest lab members.
